Gardenia Frost Proof

Gardenia jasminoides 'Frostproof'

Since Frost Proof Gardenia Shrubs can tolerate direct sunlight well. Unlike ordinary Gardenia buds which can freeze and never develop into flowers, Frostproof Gardenias bloom in late spring and are well protected from spring frosts. Please note in areas like Zone 7, you will still need to protect them in the winter time.

How to Care for Gardenia Frost Proof

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Frost Proof Gardenia shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Frost Proof Gardenai because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Frostproof Gardenia spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally-occurring, beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener's best friend and can help guarantee your success.
